View Full Version : Concerning PSA results???
08-27-2009, 12:12 PM
My husband's doctor phoned this morning with his latest PSA results.
It is 6.7
Has BPH and takes Flomax 0.4 mg each day
Apr. 2004 5.5
July 2004 4.5
Dec. 2004 4.7
May 2005 4.2
Dec 2005 3.7
Oct. 2006 5.5
Sept. 2007 4.3
Mar. 2008 4.8
Started testosterone undecanoate (Andriol) Nov. 2008 80mg twice a day for 2 weeks and then 40mg once a day
Jan. 2009 5.3
Apr. 2009 5.0 Started Andriol 40mg every other day
Aug. 2009 6.7
Doctor said to go off the Andriol again and retest in 6 weeks
Does this sound reasonable?

Sorry you can see I am a bit rattled. I meant to say Hello:)

About 6 years ago, my results showed the same evolution as your husband's with two exceptions: I wasn't taking Andriol and my last result was 7.1.
Another PSA dosage was made to determine the amount of "free" PSA as the usual test results only give total PSA.
The ratio free PSA/total PSA gives an additional indication: over 0.25, the risk of prostate cancer is very low whereas below 0.12, the risk might be significant and should be further investigated, by a biopsy for instance to check for the presence of cancereous cells.
That was my case, I underwent surgery and everything is fine since then!
I'm now 70…

Here are a couple more psa results.
Oct 2009 5.4
Mar 2010 6.3 Free PSA 24.9 Normal DRE
He has been off the Andriol since Aug 2009
Dr made a uroligist appointment Apr. 23

I would guess that the free PSA is at 0.249, if it is the case, beeing close to 0.25 and with a normal DRE, there is nothing to be afraid about, just quitely wait for the next appointment.

Thanks for getting back to us.:)
Oh I do hope you are right, I am trying to read as much stuff as I can...It is hard to keep it all straight and its confusing too.
PSA 6.3 and the other PSA number is 1.57
We are in the midst of retiring from farming and going to have a farm auction sale on the 26th of this month. We have been working hard almost everyday sorting stuff and getting the machinery ready. The farm has been in the family for almost 75 yrs, so there is alot of stuff. :eek:
We changed the urologist appt. to the 30th, so we will get the sale behind us and then see what he thinks.
The urologist that he had been going to retired a bit over a yr. ago, so this will be a new one. We think it will be good to see him see what he is like.
Anyways thanks again

Nancy, that's what I thought: free PSA divided by total PSA =1.57/6.3=0.249...
I wish your sale will meet your expectations...

The sale went fine and we are glad to have the work behind us. The farm real estate deal closes the end of this month so it is almost over.
He went to the urologist and he thought his psa numbers hadn't changed that much over the last 6 yrs.
He has put him on Avodart and he is to see him in 6 months.
What do you think of it?

Cesium chloride is a naturally occurring mineral which neutralizes the lactic acid which cancer produces. Cancers are all acidic, and cesium chloride neutralizes that lactic acid, and the cancer dies. Your oncologist will first collect several hundred dollars from for for treatments:wink: which do not work, and then, he MAY tell you to use cesium chloride. (You must first give your doctor all your money, however, that is part of his hypocritical oath.)
